Ohio House Republicans introduce bill to replace Common Core

  // Sunday, 27 July 2014 10:43 //

Ohio House Republican leaders say they will begin hearings in August on a new bill to eliminateCommon Core education standards in Ohio, with the hopes of passing it in early November whenlawmakers return to action.

Rep. Matt Huffman, R-Lima, the No. 2 House leader, and Rep. Andrew Thompson, R-Marietta,today rolled out a placeholder bill that they said would lead to the development of new,state-developed standards.

“This is an issue that needs to get resolved,” Huffman said, as he and Thompson blasted “federal intrusion” into education, arguing a one-size system doesn’t work for Ohio.

“There are a lot of opinions on this issue. We are going to give everyone who has one anopportunity to come in and talk about this.”

Thompson, who at one point called it “creepy” the way the standards were implemented in Ohio,said the more people learn about Common Core, the less they like it.
